In The Woods
Remarkable. A mystery taunt with psychological suspense, unusual events, interesting locales, and very distinct characters. All this wrapped in skillful, eloquent writing. Don't let anyone know this might be literature.
When a body is found at an archeological dig in a small community in Ireland, Detectives Rob Ryan and Cassie Maddox of the Dublin Murder Squad are assigned to the investigation. But Detective Ryan has some history of his own.
This is Ms French's first novel. Her second, The Likeness, is already out. We all have great things to look forward to.
